What is lacking in your faith? The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

https://wp.me/p4qqra-1OT

Saints, an older post, full of truth.

My prayer is, you lack nothing, in your walk with God.

I write unto you: The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

In the book of 1 John, we find the writer, telling us 12 times why he wrote to us. 

I thought it might be interesting to find  out what he felt was so important.  He imparted several Truths of the Gospel.

1 John: 1. 4.
And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

Save me, O God; The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

Assorted verses from Psalm 69,  the cry of my heart.

I love You, Lord.  I need You to deliver me from this body of sin and death.  My Natural Man, refuses to die. 

Do I know Why?   Yes, because I feed him in secret, he is a giant in my life.  I allow him to rule.

Somethings must be given up: The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

When Moses decided to see what was going on with the burning bush, He received a direct order from God.

Exodus 3:4-6
King James Version (KJV)
And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.

And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.

7 Spirits of God:

The Spiritual – As if the mystery of God wasn’t deep enough, (the Trinity), He had to add that there are seven Spirits of “God”.  (The Deity or Trinity).

image

To further complicate our understanding the word “God” in the Old Testament is from the Hebrew, Elohim and means “Creator, Supreme Ruler”, “Adoni”, also means “Supreme Ruler” (used for God or a  man who rules), and discribes The work and life of Jesus in the Old Testament.

In the New Testament the word “God” is from the Greek and means “Deity or Trinity”, and I believe discribes primarily the Father or Lord (Yahway or Jehovah) of the Old Testament, in the New.

Now the Father and Son and Spirit, are one, but with different Natures, Attributes and Characters, (explained in post, “Jesus in the Old Testament”).

The Problem : The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

The Problem:
Misunderstanding the directions received.

A couple of weeks ago I bought some pansy’s for my piano planter.

Red, white and almost blue.

image

I was very pleased.  The lady told me they would flower all winter if I snapped off the dead flowers.

Wonderful. ..easy…flowers all winter….color.  I  am excited.

Now the problem.

Not knowing any better,  I  snapped off the buds before they flowered.

image

How dumb  is that?  You would think a grown man could see what hadn’t flowered from the flowers past.

Apparently not.

image

I  don’t know if it was fatal but there is no color now. 

I  stopped the plants from flowering, meeting their potential.  From becoming a pleasant gift to all who came within sight.

Our ignorance of God’s plan and promises causes us to snap the flowering life out of on fire, young believers.

Our unbelieving, belief in God is our down fall. 

We don’t really believe the promises of God beyond Salvation.

Why?  Because so few really dig into the Spiritual.  

We educate ourselves physically,  but never really exercise  the Spiritual.

David was known as a man after Gods heart.  Why?

Read the Psalms, David knew long before Jesus, how to enter the Holy of Holies.

He spent time in Praise and Prayers,  a man who knew how to take responsibility for his errors.  

He knew how to repent and return to God.

We need to spend time the same way, in Praise and Prayer.

Finding our way into the presence of God.  Into the place of obedient peace, joy and power.

His Promises and Power are available to “whosoever” will seek His face.

“Whosoever will become a love slave.”

Those who truly give their all to the Lord.

the things which we have seen and heard: The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.”  Acts 4:20

Peter and John in the Power of the Holy Spirit and in the Name of Jesus, had healed the lame man at the gate beautiful.

image

            (Is anything to hard for Our God?)

By the Name of Jesus”

5,000 were added to the church because of this miracle.  Peter and John were commanded not to teach, preach or speak of Christ.  Their answer:

“But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye.  For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.”

Wouldn’t it be nice to see 5,000 added to the church at one time?  Or experiencing:  “the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.”

Most of our churches are seeing a decline in attendance….not an increase.  Why?

Has the Name of Jesus become of none effect?  We pray in Jesus Name, but few are touched.  (Yes, we see some miracles, but anything note worthy)?  Not really.

How dare I say this?

Look at the church, are any being added?
Do you see 5,000?   What is the problem?

There are hundreds of verses in the Word that tell us Jesus and His Disciples healed all maner of sickness, it even states they healed all that were sick.

We” tell folks not to bring their colds to church because others will be infected.  

WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!!!      .

1 Corinthians 12:28
And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.”

Apostles, Prophets and Teachers we have plenty.  It is relatively easy to study the Word and share.  Especially if there is a spot light. (for some).

Even helps and governments are easy slots to fill….

1 Corinthians 12:30
Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?”

NO, NONE, NOBODY…”THOSE THINGS PASSED AWAY WITH THE APOSTLES.”

Why do we have the others then…everything should have passed if some have.

No, this kind comes by prayer and fasting.

It’s easy to talk, harder to walk, in the Power of the Holy Spirit. 

Too many say, “If God wants me to speak in tongues, interpret, or heal the sick, He will give me those gifts.”

HORSE FEATHERS!!!!!!!

You were saved because you asked Him to forgive you, to become Your Lord and Savior.

He doesn’t behave any differently with the Gifts of the Spirit.  We must ask if we expect to receive.

We must be trust worthy if we expect Him to trust us with His Power.  We are not. 

We don’t press into the Holy of Holies.  Seek Him and expect to receive the FAITH, to walk in His Grace.

When we fast and pray, do so just seeking more of Jesus in your life.  More Jesus in your charactor, actions, thoughts, speech.

We must become more like Jesus, crucify our old, (natural), man and let Jesus lead, guide and direct our lives.

At one point in my walk, I failed the trust worthy test.  I am determined to earn back that trust.

image

Lord, let this old, broken down Holy Spirit dispenser, fulfill Your promise to Your church.

I will become a man the Lord can use in this world today as He used the Disciples in days if old.

Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever.  Amen

Thanks for visiting. Come back soon.

Do we give up hope? – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

There are so many people outside the doors of our churches and homes, who do not know Jesus, do not want to hear about Jesus, will not accept Jesus as Lord and Savior.

WARNING:  LONG POST, DO NOT READ UNLESS YOU CARE FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH JESUS.

I stand here flummoxed. …why do they not understand the peace, joy and grace that could be theirs?  Why can’t I convince even those in my own family to realize the gift of Forgiveness?

This is very frustrating.   There is something even more frustrating though.

That is the number of people who believe in and accept Jesus but who do not accept the fulness of His Holy Spirit.  I believe the Holy Spirit (and His Gifts ) are the Talents the Master left us and expects us to invest and increase until His return.

So many accept the impossibility  of Jesus  dying on the cross to save us from sin and death but the Power of the Holy Spirit. ….not for me, not for today, I don’t  need it,  God doesn’t  want us confused.

On the day of Pentecost the first Gift of the Holy Spirit given to all, was the Gift of Tongues. The crowd received the Gift of Interpretation.
